About Riverdale Preschool

Riverdale is a great choice for young children and families to begin school success. We are a free Preschool for All program supported by the state of Illinois.  This fall we will have the potential to reach 195 students in the Rock Falls area through child-centered, play based experiences.  We like to have fun while learning.  We believe that your child's uniquenesses and interests should play a part in their learning.  Whether it be learning about community helpers, farm animals, transportation, or the weather, our teachers plan lessons that follow Illinois Early Learning Standards guided by Creative Curriculum to make choices that match student needs.  We have six classrooms ranging from 10 to 20 students with options for typical or more supportive environments.  We offer a morning and an afternoon session with shuttle buses from Dillon Elementary, Merrill Elementary, and Nims Park area. 
If you are interested in starting your child on their learning adventure, please call.  We will help you set up a screening for your child and guide your through the registration process. We enroll students throughout the school year as they turn three.  Four and five year olds are welcome to start at any time. Children who are five by Sept. 1st should enroll in their district kindergarten.  We hope to see you soon!
